KINGDOM MASTER CLASS SESSIONS


The Kingdom School of Arts invite profiled actors working in mainstream film, television and theatre to share their journeys with the students and discuss the lessons they have learnt in their careers thus far.

The sessions hold great significance as the actors themselves have not attended full-time drama school, and directly relate to the students who are following a similar path into the industry.

The Master Classes provide a great source of inspiration, and offers invaluable insight into the final adjustments the actors made just before they broke into the industry.

TESTIMONIALS


     ALEK ALEXEYEVA   KINGDOM SCHOOL OF ARTS DRAMA STUDENT  “ My experience at Kingdom School of Arts was one of the first times I ever had to face acting. My training could only be described as exciting, challenging and thrilling. From the first day my tutor Michelle Bonnard made everyone feel comfortable with each other which is very important, as you have to trust the people you are with every week. The experience I received in the school will not only help me to be a good actor but also become a better person. It's amazing how so many tips you can use in real life. It's very nice how Michelle manages to balance critique and praise, so it makes you feel good about yourself and at the same time fixes all your mistakes. I think when you start doing something you have to put everything into it and in the past few months alone, I have worked on a few different shoots with different clients including Debenhams, H&M, ELLE and other international brands. ”

     NICHOLAS McFADZEAN   KINGDOM SCHOOL OF ARTS DRAMA STUDENT  “ What I love most about Kingdom is that they work very hard for themselves and their students. They work hard to train their students and to provide real opportunities for them through they’re vastly developing Production Company. From what I can see, they have an abundance to offer as they have great contacts (with the likes of Ashley Walters directing they’re most recent project), provide top training for students, and are clearly very contemporary with a great vision and hunger for success. This is what I would tell any person looking into joining Kingdom. ”
